If only I met those damn criteria 

Apply and claim you’re dyslexic, hence misreading 24 as 42. Then claim eliminating you from the recruitment process would be discrimination on the grounds of your dyslexia. Get to interview. Tug heart strings.

love it - That is a amazing Opportunity for some young people - I ended up in the Production office of the Mean Fiddler at the Phoenix Festival ' on loan for two years ' dealing with press/VIP Access  { sometime between  1993 and 1997 } and what really surprised me was ' Security had 90 seconds to try and take in at least 90 Security passes ' - they were on a wall and they bundled in waves of Security over and over again  - at the time it was not a wrist band - see photo { that part scrubbed out was the ' onstage part ' } and they all had different Colours.

Which may explain why at Glastonbury one year - I could enter the backstage Compound  though some gates but was not able to enter though the gate near The other stage - it was just not worth arguing as I could enter though a different gate.
